with local families and tourists for swimming. This beach is a perfect
place to hunt for seashells or sea glass, snorkeling or just
relaxation on the sand. This beach has lots of free parking, picnic
areas, public restrooms, showers and changing rooms, so it is a good
beach for visitors who are not staying on a beachfront location. The
public beach is close to many shops, restaurants and bars which may add

The Rincon Lizard Map

There are 17 different surf breaks identified on the Lizard Rincon map and 16 different beaches waiting for your bare feet to wander along. One (of many) amazing things about Rincon is each beach has a unique personality. With the Lizard Map you'll find trails to beaches hidden among rock outcrops and historic retaining walls, beaches under shady almond trees, beaches with big waves, steep banks and vegetation as well as long expanses of flat beaches with gentle, shallow areas perfect for wading in and exploring. You can walk the southern beaches along the Caribbean Sea and compare those to the northern beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. Rincon is unique because it is on the western shore of Puerto Rico that spans both bodies of water. Surfers flock to the northern beaches with the surf breaks, while swimmers flock to the southern beaches with their gentle waves. Click here to see more!!!
